Cooks for the day: Nkuli Tshirumbula

Easter celebrations have officially begun as South Africa’s most loved brands NESTLÉ RECIPES WITH LOVE, NESTLÉ COCOA and NESTLÉ KLIM invited select media and content creators to the Easter #DelightfullyMzansi virtual cooking showcase which took place on Thursday March 25 at Nestlé cooking studios in Bryanston.  

Cooks for the day: Christo Thurston

The three iconic brands were the stars of the cooking showcase which was headed by Chef Sizwe Cebekhulu. The cook-off saw popular actor Nkuli Tshirumbula, and the much-lauded social media content creator Christo Thurston turning the heat as they, along with select media joining virtually, prepared delightful Easter meals to celebrate the four-day holiday.

As palates rose in anticipation, the chemistry between the cooks was infectious as  they were trying to work out the recipes. It was evident that they all had a genuine passion for cooking and a desire to become better cooks, if not for themselves then to delight their loved ones during special occasions. The beginning of the cook-off saw the cooks prepare a decadent chocolate pudding for dessert which was paired with a creamy linefish as the main course meal.  

The action-packed showcase produced mouth-watering dishes and here are highlights:
